and due process. 2005 was a different time than now. that was a big deal. i was in washington at the time as a capitol hill correspondent and i remember the stir it caused in washington. defense secretary donald rumsfeld called the report reprehensible. dick cheney said he was offended. . called it absurd. the washington post editorialized that, quote, lately the organization has tended to save its most vitriolic condemnation not for dictators but for the united states and. it was a clear attempt to try to discredit this organization. i have followed washington politics long enough to know that when top officials attack you instead of ignoring you it is because they are scared of you. the white house's attack on the group's credibility for me at that time was a clear affirmation of amnesty international integrity and power. we are talking about look bush administration but it is important to note that president obama signed the national defense authorization act that endorses another attempt by the u.s. government to conduct military commission trial. amnesty international and irene khan

by public affairs television >> moyers: welcome to the journal. there were hands in the air in washington this week, but it wasn't a stickup. the new financial crisis inquiry commission, appointed by congress to find out how america got rolled, began hearings this week. these four are not the victims of one of the greatest bank heists in history; they're the perpetrators, bankers so sleek and crafty, they got off with the loot in broad daylight, and then sweet-talked the government into taxing us to pay it back. watching that scene on the opening day of the hearings, it was hard enough to believe that almost a year has passed since barack obama raised his hand, too, taking the oath of office to become our 44th president. even harder to remember what america looked like before obama, because we've also been robbed of memory, assaulted by what the nobel laureate czeslaw milosz described as a "fantastic proliferation of mass media." we live in a time "characterized by a refusal to remember." inconvenient facts simply disappear down the memory hole, as in george orwell's novel, "1984." presid

in the "washington post". he even says everyone is entitled to opinions not his own facts. he says you are dead wrong. >> i agree, facts are important. the fact of the matter is this administration last february put out a budget plan that said they wanted to double the national debt in five years and nearly triple it in 10. during george bush's years in office the annual deficits ran 2% of gdp, 1.7 of gdp since world war ii. this administration is planning using optimistic projections about economic growth projecting deficient it iss on their watch will run 5.1% of gdp. i wrote 200 words for the "washington post" on the democrats in congress. mr. axelrod while all these things are swirling around in the world proceeds to write 700 words attacking me on a subject i barely touched on which was deficit and spending which i talked about congress not the administration. i'm going to be responding to mr. axelrod and setting the record straight by relying on the facts on what this administration has been doing on spending, deficit and tarp. watch for the pages next week. >> greta: if says your writing was a

heads to haiti. let's play "hardball." good evening, i'm chris matthews. in washington leading off tonight race against death, people need water sooner than they need food n hot climates they need it faster. for that basic human reason the situation in haiti is growing more tense and desperate as the hours go by, as aid organizations struggle to distribute water, food and supplies to the injured and displaced. 2 million to 3 million people are in dire need of help right now. looters have begun taking to the streets in fear of widespread violence is gripping the city at port-au-prince. the longer it takes for aid to get to the people the worse the situation is likely to become. haitian government workers have buried some 7,000 corporations in mass graves, and hundreds of bodies are strewn along roadsides and outside the city morgue. no one can really be sure what the death toll is already. the panamerican health organization now estimates it could be as high as 100,000 but that's just the latest estimate. u.s. military cargo planes arrived at the airport today, more than 100 paratro
you for what you are doing, washington, d.c. i do not know how you're doing it. do you ever feel like a voice lost in the wilderness? i have written you a lot of letters. i am sorry i had to do that. i cannot believe what is going on. there are a lot of angry people in this country. i travel all over the country. i have a motor home and i am retired and i talk to people. there are a lot of angry people out there. in any event, thank you for answering my letters. i wrote you a letter asking how many federal prisons you think we will have to have when people do not pay the premium if the health care gets passed and go to jail. there will be a lot of people in jail. on a humorous note, i wrote you a letter asking you to run nancy pelosi out of town on a rail. how come you have not done that?

so much for a preview. kelly? >> a lot of people in washington are working this weekend to dot the i's and cross the t's on the health care reform bill, but some of the focus has moved to massachusetts. we just heard molly and jamie talking about it. a lot going on there, where a democrat and republican are in the heated race for the late ted kennedy's senate seat. a seat that could actually determine the outcome of health care. david trucker is a writer with role call and joins us live from washington. david, good to see you. when you talk about health care reform, who would have ever thought that it would come down to, or at least apparently coming down to what takes place in massachusetts, so much so that the president of the united states is going there to actually campaign on behalf of coakley to try to make sure she wins and the reason, of course, is that if she loses, then they lose 60 votes in the senate. tell me about all this, please. >> well, it's an interesting con influence of events. democratic leaders have been working all week at the white house where they're locked a
on the ground. haiti's ambassador to the united states visited a relief hearing in washington today and passed on a request. send body bags. >> body bags because the way they are disposing of some of the corpses is very undigfy anied. >> shepard: witnesses tell of make shift graves popping up all over the capital and they are not being documented and therefore their friends and family members no one will know exactly who died, where or weather. survivors struggle to bury the dead. medical teams and relief workers fighting to keep the living alive. steve harrigan live in port-au-prince this evening. earlier today you said you are starting to see more hopeful signs. >> certainly, shep, we have seen a bigger international presence on o the streets and u.n. convoys and international red cross but really tough going for the people especially here in port-au-prince. when you knock down all the buildings you have to do everything in the street and for many the street has become the kitchen, the living room, the bathroom and for some even the cemetery. we are seeing people leave the city in hope of mo

[applause] >> so this is 1989. this is a student. a student demonstration which happened on the 24th of november, and the police -- it was a moment when it looked like the police could kill people and then they didn't kill people. the things started to unfold so this was the moment when the wall -- i took my wife to be, my wife now, was microphone, and i brought her to prague. and said prague is a very quiet in the fall and we can take a walk in the old town. and we came from new york and it was like this warm evening and we walked up the street and we see these people walking with suitcases and teddy bears. looks like from some movie. we come to the park and were mor
to this conversation. he has something to say to all of you. mr. ambassador, go ahead. >> since i got to washington in 2004, the problem of the adoptees, and adopted has come to my office many times. and i have done a lot of things with the minister of the interior to hasten the process. and one thing that we have done recently after the earthquake, those who have finished the process, and who have visas, but did not have haitian passports, and that's the only thing that is holding them back. i have ordered the unit passport in washington to issue passports for them so they can travel. if you can get all the papers to us in washington, we will issue the passports because after you finish the whole process of having an american visa and approve it and they approve it, very often the last hurdle is the haitian passport. and for people who do not know th that, passports for haitians are issued in two places. they're issued in port-au-prince, haiti, for all haitians inside the country. once a haitian leaves haiti, even going next door to the dominican republic, their passports are issued from washingto
ne news. >> brian: this is a fox news alert. brian wilson in washington. those pictures are coming from richmond, virginia, where bob mcdonald is about to become the governor of that state. the first republican governor in a while. you were looking at the south portico of the state capital of richmond, virginia. the 75th governor. his a top spot in virginia in years. hatians are trying to figure out what to do with the dead as the government fears as many as 200,000 people, 200,000 people may have been killed. the red cross puts the official death toll between 40 and 50,000. the truth probably somewhere in between. secretary of state hillary clinton is due to arrive in the earthquake ravaged nation within the hour and though aid is pouring in, enormous obstacles remain, getting people that aid. orlando salinas is at the airport where it's still shaking in port-au-prince. orlie what can you tell us? >> want to tell you something, just after about 11:07 this pontiac, eastern time, there was another after shock in here in port-au-prince and other small suburbs. one of our camera crew
this is the logic we have been trying for years. i have personally been in washington demonstrating as a journalist. when things get bad, you have to go on the street with the people. i was there twice. it is kind of a victory. i think the administration has done the right they and i hope mr. obama will do the right thing. i am so pleased with what the american government has done so far. i have friends of mine because of the prisons of the united states, some of them have been saved. we're grateful for that. we're grateful for everything the u.s. is doing at this point. host: as far as giving out information to florida. how'd you get information? caller: we have created our own system. first, we have a government corresponded in haiti. i spoke with him today for two minutes and the phone cut off. since then, have not been able to reach him. everyone was looking to find a family in different areas. we asked them to call in. they call in and tell us certain areas are ok. for people in those areas, but are not 100% to ensure but that gives them hope. there was a station in haiti that was able to broa
but collectively they game together to form this union and they were led by, of course, george, washington, so he has got to rise to the top. >> so she is so nonspecific and you ask her what founding fathers and she goes i like them all. i don't think that is good. >> she went on to -- ai grow with you but went on to say george, washington, which i think she kind of in a way understands washington because i think she is kind of a reluctant servant. i think she walk inside this -- >> bill: could it be that she couldn't think of any founding fathers? >> could be but i don't think it was. >> bill: because that is the criticism of her. >> here is the thing with sarah palin. she has shields up like you couldn't believe and i until yu get the shields down on her i don't think you will see sarah palin be able to answer enough questions about her. the second thing is i decided that sarah palin cannot be president of the united states until i see her able to eviscerate somebody like you. >> bill: but nobody can. that means we would go presidentless. we would never have a president. >> see she is playing d
will be dynamite, like acme dynamite. you know what? washington's in no mood for great earnings from these clowns so there is no incentives for these banks to blow out the numbers. they won't want to tell a good story. all that will do is make higher taxes for them. would you tell a good story and then get taxed? no. tell a bad story and avoid the tax. these companies know what's good for them. i suspect we'll see a subdued group and subdued reaction. funny thing about these bankers. bankers don't favor being drawn in quarters. they don't seem to like being dangled from meat hooks. let alone being embarrassed in front of godfather true style committees. i don't feel that way about tech. i think intel actually had a supercalifragilistic expealadocious quarter. which is different. they had a i love you, you love me quarter. and my charitable trust, action alerts plus.com, bought a ton. i think when we see from ibm on tuesday, that's always an easy one, ibm on tuesday. stx and sky works. that's david aldrich. maybe we'll give him a jingle. he's probably not -- i don't know, he probably won't come on
